Bangash Ka Kamra



Bangash Ka Kamra (Bangash's room) is a residential haveli (mansion) constructed during the eighteenth century by a noble woman named Bibi Saheba. She was the companion of an Afghan noble named Mohammad Khan Bangash. Bangash was the Viceroy of Allahabad and Malwa province during the Mughal rule. Bibi Saheba was a very influential woman of great piety. She built a huge inn in Delhi. Travelers, particularly merchants from Afghanistan, found comfortable lodging there. The inn was later re-named Bangash Ka Kamra. A market that came up in the area still exists today known as Gadodia Market.
